This 3-day workshop introduces concepts of fluvial geomorphology and stream processes related to channel and floodplain formation, bankfull stage identification, regional hydraulic geometry curves, applications of the Rosgen classification system for natural streams in the Southeast, and stream stability assessment. Students work in small groups in the field to measure stream physical conditions and calculate stream morphology relationships for channel dimension, pattern, and profile. Students also learn about field techniques for measuring streambank erosion, pebble count techniques for substrate analysis, and channel stability assessment. Students should bring field gear, waders, and a laptop for spreadsheet calculations.
